Reviews
"Winter's heartfelt, accessible text is infused with immediacy and enthusiasm.... Magnificent biography." --The New York Times Book Review

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, February 2013:
"Even adults who are indifferent to baseball will likely be so drawn into Mays' story and Winter's rousing text that they'll want to gather up a crowd just to read this one aloud."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 3, 2012:
"A must-have for baseball fans."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2012:
"An all-star gem to share with grandparents, parents, children, baseball fans and anyone else."

Starred Review, Booklist, September 1, 2012:
"The Say Hey Kid had style to spare, and so does this irrepressible book."
